    Some Best Friend He Is...

    We were so close in high school especially when he told me he was gay. We got even closer but since I left for college in another town we don't talk as often. I'm okay with it though. I only see him when I'm in town and it's because we have mutual friends. I love him but...

    I Don't Get It

    We have a "friend" at home that will constantly put my wife down.  Why I don't have an answer for it but she is always negative about almost everything that is going on.  I think that she is jealous of my wife cause she wants to do something different and...

    There are horrible subtle ways they do it too,

    like they select their words carefully in their consciousness to be hurtful and denigrating. I have my theories as to why they do it. They are ugly people who won't allow others to express themselves because they must doubt them. It is so unappealing. I think too, they do this...

    It's Made Me Lose Respect For Her.

    it's wrong for any of us to cut others down, but i find it especially disappointing when it comes from someone that i liked and respected. someone who comes from a good background, educated and well spoken. i would think a person like this wouldn't feel the need to put others...

    I Hate Bullies

    I think they are stupid, idiotic, ignorant, insecure, they lack moral fiber and character. I have no respect for them at all, especially the men. I think in genral they are a bunch of *** nuts.

    Why Can't We Be Friends

     I love EP...Here I've found a place where I can let my hair down and be myself: talk about any subject, share secrets, even have friendly disagreement. I'm pretty new to EP so I've personally only had good experiences so far and "I want to thank you-- for letting me...

    Yes This Really Sucks!

    I really can't stand a person that bullies and puts others down. Even here on EP....I've seen ignorant people putting down others. And I'm like... Come On people! Grow up! JERKS! Have respect! Ok I know you are obviously not happy with yourself or maybe your mother didn't teach...

    I hate getting put down

    but by now I just expect it like its just apart of life. I get that some people might not like my hair, my personality, or even what I say. But at least I'm not acting like someone else this is me-either take me or leave me.

    This is a personality trait

    that goes right through me. I am usually an understanding person and I get that sometimes people have a bad day or are mad at the world, but if you are constantly talking poorly of others or making fun of people, I will quickly lose respect for you. Sadly there are some people...

    This Really Bothers Me!

    I am surprised that there are only two stories on this issue!  I thought it would be more popular.  I think that people who systematically put down other people are not cool people.  I have to be careful when I am defending myself though, sometimes I will even...

    Pointless

    I don't see the appeal of putting others down just to make yourself feel like you're the ****. More than anything, some people need to get a grip on themselves.

    It's Horrible

    I can't stand magazines, tv, internet, etc. They all tell us we need a diet. They constantly tell us that we aren't as good as the celebrities, they tell us what's the craze, and tell us that violence is right. The media shows horrible things that may cause stereotypes. People...

    Put Down Others

    I applaud the person who created this group. :) I also can't stand people who always put down others. I wonder why they do it for?  Are they jealous of something?  Do they want to be like the other person?  Do they want something that the other person have?  There has to be a...

    Unacceptable!

    Intolerance is a four-letter word. I generally am someone to accept most people's views, but this I will not allow in my life.  There is always more to the story and there will always be reasons people are the way they are. No one has the right to berate the other human beings...
